Today we celebrate St. Joseph, the husband of Mary and the guardian of Jesus. May his life of fatherly love, faith, and obedience be an example for us.

Prayer of the Day
O God, from the family of your servant David you raised up Joseph to be the guardian of your incarnate Son and the husband of his blessed mother. Give us grace to imitate his uprightness of life and his obedience to your commands, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
